freshman republican ted cruz and the bill's veteran sponsor, democrat dianne feinstein. >> the question that i would pose to the senior senator from california is would she deem it consistent with the bill of rights, for congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the second amendment in the context of the first or fourth. >> it's fine you want to lecture me on the constitution, i appreciate it. just know, i've been here for a long time, i've passed on a number of bills, i've studied the constitution myself. i am reasonably well educated. and i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough for the people in the united states? do they need a bazooka? do they need other high-powered weapons that military people use to kill in close combat? i don't think so. >> president obama tries to lay on the charm offensive now with the senate republicans today. that's a tough crowd. >> be surprised to hear that my conference opposes this left-wing manifesto masquerading as a respo

to lecture senator dianne feinstein about guns. she has a bill that would restore the assault weapons ban which expired. and as our colleague rachel maddow pointed out last night, this ban might have prevented the newtown shooter from getting a buschmaster assault rifle. why is it that republicans say they share your concern about gun violence, but whenever there's an opportunity to do something, they simply turn and walk in the opposite direction? >> yes. the irony is that this is an extraordinary example of political cowardace by people like ted cruz and those who are so easily swintimidated by the nra. senator feinstein has tremendous courage, as well as being one of the sharpest intellects in the united states senate. the vast majority of her colleagues know that. cruz is a newbie. perhaps he doesn't realize the kind, the level of respect that has been earned from senator feinstein's colleagues. but to do that, what it did was really to marginalize senator cruz. now, clearly he's trying to stake out a political position to the right of the republican party and it keeps getting more an

dianne feinstein says instead of being included in the measure, it will be offered as an amendment. 157 different assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines that would no longer be lawful. the decision means the ban stands little chance of passing because of solid opposition from republicans and democrats in the senate and it's believed to have less of a chance in the house, but this is a decision made by those who control the senate and democrats today. well, a stunning new report shedding light on the growing retirement crisis in america. get this: it's a survey released by the employee benefit research institute and they've concluded that some 57% of those surveyed have less than $25,000 in savings. and these are folks that are going to retire, less than 25 grand in the bank, and a record high of 28% have no confidence they will be able to retire at all. how did we get here? melissa francis is host of "money with melissa francis" on the fox business network, and chris plante of the host of the chrisplante show and leslie marshall and you think how scary that must be for t
